My Purple Heart....

Another week and time for another PlayDateCafe challenge...
Here is the inspiration and colours
And here is what i came up with
I'd not made any jewellery in quite a while..
I went to a small craft show in sept and got lots of fab lampwork beads... plus i have lots of other 'home stock' but had since done nothing with them, this challenge was the kick up the bum i needed!
Unfortunately the camera just didn't pick up the rich purple tones of the hearts very well.
All the beads are threaded onto a wire base and then attached to the cord with a jump ring cord twist concoction i created to be a bit different..
I also made a matching pair of earings.
Maybe in future i'll use more colour challenges to make my jewels.. Sometimes i need all the help i can get lol
Thanks for stopping by and looking.. come back again soon x
